The Albox area
Antares is a villa situated just outside the market town of Albox, about 450 metres above sea level. It stands in the mountains of the Almanzora Valley, above Mojacar, in the province of Almeria. The Valley is adorned with orange and lemon groves as well as terraces of olive and almond trees. The mountain air is beautifully clean, the terrain is studded with cacti and grasses and life is tranquil and easy. The stunning mountain ranges change hue with the rising and setting of the sun and the clear night skies display unparralleled views of the stars. The dry river beds - the ramblas - are wonderful to walk and explore.
Albox is a typical Spanish town with white-washed houses and narrow streets. It is surrounded by olive groves and its origins are medieval.
The surrounding area has many outdoor pursuits to offer visitors - there are many country areas to walk and explore, cycling or off-roading and horse-riding to name a few. There is a weekly market held on Tuesdays.
